Our Story

Quality Makes All the Difference

In 2003, Kevin Coleman founded Coleman Research to give investors a better way to access industry knowledge. Coleman helps thousands of clients get answers to their most critical questions, without leaving their desks. Rather than spending hours reading research reports, or traveling to meet people at conferences, we connect clients directly with industry experts, to hear immediate, relevant insights.

Coleman has served more than 11,000 individuals at hundreds of global investment firms, consultancies and corporations. We've built a network that spans all industries and geographies, with experts in more than 12,000 cities worldwide. Even as we continue to grow, the relationships we've built – with our clients and our experts – remain at the heart of our business. Every interaction we have is based on trust and transparency.

In today's market, information is more available than ever before. But the need for specialized and authentic information, the kind of information that leads to insights, continues to be highly valued. That's why at Coleman we continually invest in cutting-edge technology and hiring top talent - all to help our customers get the knowledge they need to make the decisions that create value… and a competitive advantage.
